White Denim — Takes Place In Your Work Space

Reviewed by yewknee

It's hard to believe that the band putting out this bit of soft-rock is the same outfit responsible for the absolutely energetic jams of Shake, Shake, Shake or Let's Talk About It. Half the EP contains some guitar noodling that steers towards the style of frat pop that I'm not too keen on, the other half consists of more tension building numbers. I'm happy to have more White Denim of any kind, but I think this officially signals their disinterest in being the Rock Band everyone wanted them to be. At least they're branching out; no stagnation in terms of style for these guys.
